I would would also point out that 'schema repositories' the way
BizTalk.Org and Oasis.org have implemented them are confusing and possibly
dangerous.  Both OASIS and BizTalk [expletive deleted]-in any DTD or schema which are
provided to them.  I was at a meeting recently where an 'unnamed' company
stated that their DTD was the 'e-commerce catalog standard DTD' because it
was 'approved' by OASIS.

The DTD didn't meet general catalog requirements and it didn't parse -- of
course, very few DTD's actually parse coming out of e-commerce

I think providing a 'standard repository' requires a certain level of
technical scrutiny and responsibility.
